The time is almost upon us, Bloom & Breathe is officially out in one week!
To celebrate, Mike put together a video showing the process for assembling the screen-printed dust covers that come with the most limited vinyl pressing. Check it out:
Each cover was screen printed by VGKids under supervision of our illustrator extraordinaire, Matt Dye, on French Paper Co. whip cream colored pop-tone cover paper. We then scored, glued, and hand numbered each cover ourselves.
The covers will be shipped with each coke-bottle clear with oxblood and grimace splatter variant order. This variant is sold out, but if you haven't preordered the album yet, we still have a beautiful "Bone" variant out of 300 and a milky clear with blue and green heavy splatter out of 500 available here.
For those of you who have been with us from the start, you know how important art is to our band. From the very first hand screen-printed copies of The Sun Will Rise and Lead Me Home, we've always taken the time to create art and packaging that we felt represented the music, and to be a direct part of it's creation. Bloom & Breathe is no different, and we're excited to be continuing this tradition with these limited edition covers.
In addition to this video, we're happy to announce a short run of headlining dates on our way out to meet up with Foxing this November. We'll be hitting our pseudo-hometowns of Detroit and Lincoln as well as Pittsburgh, Denver, and Salt Lake City. We'll have a few more headlining dates to announce soon for the way home as well, so stay tuned! Here's all of our upcoming tour dates:
